Designer: Ralph Lauren
Notable Guests: Kanye West
Location: 550 Washington St.
What was it like: A frenzy of flashbulbs ensued as Kanye West entered the swanky chandelier-lit studio space (his first time attending the designer's show), but as soon as the show began, the entire room instantaneously shifted their focus to a myriad of Western-inspired looks, holding true to Lauren's sophisticated and timeless style. This time it came in the form of cashmere everything (from turtlenecks to skirts to dresses) in tonal shades, to cozy shearling patchwork coats and vests, to a gorgeous glittering bronze beaded dress complete with a snuggly chic topper and matching gloves.
Why we love this collection: Last season, we were wooed by an inspirational luxury safari theme that had us planning an exotic vacay, but this season, after a seemingly endless winter that just won't let up, Lauren's cozy chic collection comprised of layers of cashmere, shearling, and platform boots was exactly what the fashion doctor ordered.
